Walking alone at night is dangerous. But if you have to, there's now an app to make it safer.
The Kitestring app lets you set up an estimated time for your trip – for example, how long it will take you to walk back to your apartment or dorm, or wherever you are headed. When the time period is up, the app will send you a text asking if you made it home OK. If you don't respond to the text, the app will automatically send the following text message to all of your pre-selected emergency contacts: "Hey, this is [YOUR NAME]. I'm going out for a walk. If you get this, I might not have made it back safely. Give me a call? (I used kitestring.io to send this message.)"

- That's Not Cool to prevent Dating Abuse 2014-03-11
Digital abuse is a growing form of abuse, particularly among teens, which can include unwanted, repeated calls or text messages, privacy violations such as breaking into email or social networking accounts, and pressure to send nude or private pictures or videos. That’s Not Cool is a national public education campaign to prevent teen dating abuse. That’s Not Cool uses digital examples of controlling behavior online and by cell phone to encourage teens to draw their own line about what is, or is not, acceptable relationship behavior. It was developed by Futures Without Violence in partnership with the Department of Justice’s Office on Violence Against Women and the Advertising Council. For today’s teens, digital technology is an extension of their everyday lives and their intimate relationships. However, these new digital technologies have created a landscape in which personal boundaries and ways to promote safety are far from clear.
